As with all voluntary organisations funding is always an issue. We have endured lean times and have been threatened with closure on more than one occasion but we are happy to say that our doors have always remained open. Our Thursday evening drop-in legal advice clinic has in our 40 years never been cancelled and continues to operate as an important resource in the community. The demand for our services is ever increasing and in seeking to meet that demand we need to be ever more resourceful in securing funding.
Our main fundraising event for 2015 our annual ‘Summer Party - Hawaiian Luau' took place on Friday July 10th in the Sheds Bar in the Bar Council of Ireland. Future fundraising events will be listed in the fundraising events link on the right hand side of this page.
Community Law & Mediation provides support to other community and advocacy organisations through our membership scheme, the benefits of which include legal advice from one of our solicitors on issues affecting the organisation’s service users. This is important as it allows us to expand the impact of the service while at the same time keeping CLM up to date with the issues faced by the community. If you would like to learn more or become a member please download our membership form here or click on the membership link on the right hand side of the page to pay online now.
Community Law & Mediation is pleased to offer a wide range of legal courses on issues such as: Debt, Consumer law, Employment Law, Family Law, Wills and Probate.
CLM also runs FETAC accredited courses in areas such as family law, employment law and housing. CLM can also deliver tailor made training courses developed specifically for the needs of organisations working in the community and voluntary sector. These courses will be designed in direct consultation with you to ensure content and methods are appropriate to the needs of the organisation and experience of participants.
